In addition to sponsoring meetings and lectures, after 1900 Cambridge Political Equality Association helped organize suffrage rallies and parades, and raised money for woman suffrage through bazaars and rummage sales. In 1901, Cambridge Political Equality Association affiliated with the Massachusetts Woman Suffrage Association. It also worked with the Cambridge Woman Suffrage Party and other organizations (probably including the Cambridge Public School Association), encouraging women to register and to vote in school committee elections. Cambridge Political Equality Association later became part of Massachusetts Woman Suffrage Association and was probably the forerunner of the Cambridge League of Women Voters.
